Aurora Wings angel

Do you remember that I used Young Angel by Aurora Wings not so long ago? Well, I had another request for a card using that stamp and that is what I’m going to show you today. This card request was also quite specific with orange being the main colour and using loads of embellishments.

Orange.

When someone asks me to do orange I’m stuck. I’m not a particular fan of the colour and I very rarely use it. But there I was with orange as the main colour, staring at my markers, determined to find a combination I could be happy with.

And I did.

I am so happy with this orange combination. Like… so happy that I might use orange again… for fun!! Yes, that surprised me as well. Now I’m glad I accepted this challenge.

I’ve used papers by Pion Design and MFT Stamps as well as dies from Joy Craft, Precious Marieke, La-La Land Crafts and a puncher by Martha Stewart. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and The Hobby House.

Copics used: (skin) E00, E02, E13, E15, (hair) E31, E35, E37, E29, (green) YG13, YG17, YG67, (wings) N0, N1, N3, (orange) YR04, YR07, YR21, YR23

A little bit random

Today I am showing you the second card I made on (Inter)National Scrapbooking Day in an event hosted for Scandinavian scrapbookers. The challenge here was a photo of a layout by Skrapowisko. (If you like doing layouts, you need to see hers. They are superb!) I cannot seem to relocate this particular one on her website to show you, but I was inspired by her background and all the speech bubbles and text around the centre image. Also mostly pale colours.

I’ve used my Copic Markers to create the background, as well as to colour in the Ching-Chou Kuik image. You will find a list of all the colours at the bottom of the post as usual. All of the die cuts are from La-La Land Crafts. I’ve used sentiment stamps from MFT Stamps and Papirdesign.

Copics used: (background from top) BG72, V91, YG00, BV20, YR00, B000, RV00, G00, Y00, BV000, R00

Baby boy

It has been a bit quiet on the blog front for me as of late. On the card front, too, actually, as my mojo is still off somewhere. I am however still able to make the odd card. This is a baby boy card I made using a super adorable Mo Manning image. Everything is coloured with Copics. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts.

CMN – Heart

I have some very exciting news.. I made it onto the Copic Marker Norway design team!! Can’t you believe it?! I primarily sent in the application for the DT call hoping that perhaps they would consider me next time around, and I actually made it onto the team! I am so chuffed! I am very much looking forward to working alongside such talented ladies and maybe inspiring people a little on my own along the way.

Today there is a new challenge at CMN – use dies. I went completely overboard on the dies using a ton from Noor Design and the card template die from GoKreate. The image I chose is by Ching-Chou Kuik, called Love, and (obviously) coloured with copics. For once I also cut the image out by hand! I decided to go with pinks for a change, because it was mother’s day here yesterday and it seemed to fit perfectly. The papers are Lili of the Valley and First Edition Paper. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts as is the dark ribbon.
